WELCOME TO THE HVWC CALENDAR: home of all our upcoming readings, events and workshops. You can view by list or calendar (see right menu to choose). Click the colored tabs below to show only specific options. Our workshops run as multi-session series or one-day “intensives.” Note, we list the multi-session courses on the first day they meet only. The full dates of the session are described in the course descriptions. You would need to scroll back to the start date if you needed to enroll for something already underway. But do let us know if you want to join something in midstream since we need the blessing of the instructor. Questions? Email us.

Monday Night Poetry Workshop with Alex Dimitrov via Zoom

July 6 @ 6:30 pm - 9:00 pm

$370

How to Begin and End Poems

In this 6-week workshop we will be studying poems with surprising, urgent, and skillful beginnings and endings. We will also be experimenting with the way we begin and end our own poems. How do we refrain from overwriting? Is it true that most of the time we can cut our last line? What considerations should go into deciding where to begin a poem? All ideas and approaches will be welcome. We will be rigorous and also have fun.
NB: This class is capped at 10 so sign up ASAP to secure a spot.
NB: Please send one poem to [email protected] a week before the class starts.
NB: This class will be taught via Zoom so geography will not be an impediment.
Alex Dimitrov is the author of three books of poems, Love and Other Poems, which will be published by Copper Canyon Press in February of 2021, Together and by Ourselves, and Begging for It. His poems have been published in The New Yorker, the New York Times, The Paris Review, and Poetry. He has taught writing at Princeton University, Columbia University, and New York University. Previously, he was the Senior Content Editor at the Academy of American Poets. He lives in New York.
